WPWeekly Episode 65 – Interview With Nikolay Of GlotPress

wordpressweekly1In this Jeffroless addition of WordPress Weekly, David Peralty interviews Nikolay Bachiyski, creator of the GlotPress project. Among some of the topics discussed include translations, internationalization, localization, reasons for the GlotPress project, tools and techniques for translating themes and plugin, and more. I know that after I finished listening to this episode the other day, the GlotPress project made much more sense to me. I want to thank David for filling in for me as he did a great job.

  1. matt is an adviser to sphere, wegame, rescuetime and foodzie. From matts about page. Sorry can’t link on touch

  2. Props to David for doing such a great job of flying solo on the podcast this week!

    I know one plugin that I created a translation for was GigPress. I think that the developer did a great job of internationalizing his plugin, lots of languages to choose from. Though my translation was just to customize the terminology of the plugin.

    According to Matt’s about page, “I have been or am currently an adviser to Sphere, WeGame, Rescuetime, and Foodzie.” And The Howdy Doody fan club ;)

  3. Matt says “I have been or am currently an adviser to Sphere, WeGame, Rescuetime, and Foodzie.” on his about page.

    Really looking forward to the interview with Scott Reilly.

  4. @David – Actually, this was episode 65. The roundtable episode was 64 but I messed up the title to say 65. Corrected now though.

    Congrats to Conorp for getting the first place points this time around.

  5. First off, it was good to see you at the meetup!

    Actually, I haven’t heard about GlotPress project before.
    I think only one web source (a report log from WordCamp SF) has featured this in Japanese (my native language). Anyhow, it’s really interesting for the bilingual users/or developers.

    Thanks for posting a great interview!


  6. @endunham – It was great to see you as well. Looking forward to future meetups! Great to see a project geared towards internationalization.
